Dante's View, R.I.P.
Griffith Park is burning. One of the early casualties was the popular hiking destination called "Dante's View." It is no more. Guess I won't be hiking that trail any time soon.
Here are some pics BF and I took tonight from the L.A. River. More can be found in my full flickr set.

Wide shot of the whole hillside:
Fire appearing to pour down the hillside:
A "fire tornado":
More hills on fire:
Tree silhouetted by fire:
I'm really curious what all this will look like in the morning. It'll be a long time before Griffith Park returns to its former glory, that's for sure.
